When my mac reboots, I would like to have Terminal open in full-screen mode (not full window size). I'm on OS X 10.8.2. How can I configure this?

To have Terminal open in full screen when logging in:

  1. Open Terminal, enter full screen (View>Enter Full Screen), then close it.

  2. Open System Preferences>General and uncheck the "Close windows when quitting an application" option:
